Un-box, plug in and start it up. It loads right into windows embedded with RDP and Citrix clients ready for you to start using. This is the little machine that could, it is loaded with USB ports, VGA and Display Port, Gigabit LAN, PS2 and Serial Ports...

Obvious limited functionality which i knew going into the Thin Client market ; No Display port to DVI adapter

Best in Class


Chose this family of products becasue we have a need to rotate one monitor to protrait mode. This was the only Thin Client that could do that (at the time). We have adopted these thin clients for our VDI project after evaluating it's predessors....

Excellent confiuration and foot print ; Excellent power consumption ; Excellent configuration tool suite ; Excellent documentation -- with caveats ; Excellent technical support ; Internal USB ports allows adding additional memory if needed -- we used...

Does not include Display Port adapter for DVI ; Does not include solution for rotating monitors as standard which is needed if you are going to rotate monitors in VMware View 4.0 with PCoIP ; Third party software or Video Driver update is required
